We're jumping a few weeks back for this week's #wbw to our meal at Gaijin in Astoria. Here's another crowd pleaser and a piece we particularly enjoyed: Japanese squid, #shiso, and #uni. Sweetness and texture from the squid meshed well with the richness of the uni and herbaciousness of the shiso. Enjoy!
I had low expectations for this morning's excursion. The summer has smaller waves, less current, which translates to less beach debris that washes up. I just needed some quiet, with only me and the waves making any noise. But it turned out fantastic. The sea urchin test and the live one was so beautiful. Then I found a new stripey kind of starfish and next to it razor coral. Then this awesome cone. There were pukas, cowries, and lovely glass. Two hours well spent. #beachcombing#coneshell#seaurchin#starfish#cheaperthantherapy#oahu#iamneverleavingthisisland
